Give your ugly fence a makeover

This post has moved to a new location

We put an easel on our fence, along with a music (wall). We also painted a number of the horizontal posts with chalkboard paint to allow the children to write/draw on sections of it! I have photos of the music area and the easel on my blog, but none of the chalkboard paint yet :). I hope to get a sand/water wall up on a section of the fence in the near future, although with our freezing temperatures this time of year, we really won't be able to use it much until spring. (The sand is too frozen/hard to scoop!)

LOVE the boot fence! We picked out our house in part because none of the neighbors have fences. Just makes for so much more room to run and play.
So glad that there are people out there trying to make fences more interesting and entertaining for children!

Juliet - we picked up an idea from your photos on facebook and gave our tin shed wall a makeover. Here is the result three months later. Thank you for sharing ideas. It looks like milk bottles are the same the world over! - "Little Eyes on Nature"

Thanks John

Your business is the sort that can be so useful for schools who need to develop their school yards and outdoor spaces.
